nope, legal != status quo
eer heard of dead/unenforcable laws?

@ChristianD @Wolf480pl
Can you elaborate on that? I'm not shure if I understood you correct.

@paulfree14 @ChristianD
status quo = what people are in fact doing
legal = what the law says they should be doing
there are laws that are notoriously broken and nobody cares, and the authorities can't be bother to actually enforce them

@Wolf480pl @paulfree14
What you're referring to are called "blue laws". We are specifically not referring to them, don't be silly.

@ChristianD @paulfree14
Why is referring to blue laws silly?
Do laws that prohibit certain uncompetitive practices also count as blue laws?
Do laws that prohibit certain ways of corpos exploiting consumers also count as blue laws?

@ChristianD @paulfree14
>ban some or all Sunday activities for religious reasons
>ban sale of certain items on specific days

I don't see how a ban on encryption that I was talking about earlier would count as a blue law.

Oh, wait, you weren't responding to THAT post... so, lemme go back a few posts and reply there.
